Thanks! Exhaust is a custom y-pipe (2.25" downpipes merged to 3"), 3" Magnaflow cat, 3" Flowmaster 70 and a 3" Kolak tailpipe finished in the stock 5.9 tip. Intake is the stock box with better ducting from the grill and a Durango air hat on the stock TB (hopefully going to throw a 52mm on soon).

And yeah, the 2nd gear chirp is hilariously fun in person. Especially when you open it up and get a nice chirp while carrying a passenger that's never seen an auto bark the tires on a shift.

Very nice set-up! The 52mm TB probably won't do much, save yourself the ~$250. Well, I take that back, it may help more with all the other modifications you have done vs putting it on a stock engine. Headers are a nice touch.

Matt is always telling me how your niner barks second, and now seeing it on video is awesome. Care to give more specs on the tranny kit? Name brand? How much? etc. I bet Matt always cracks a smile when you bark second lol

Death wobble :thumbs down: would a loose steering stabilizer cause that? Track bar has ever so slight play in it. Might be the bushing in it allowing play? But after work I will tighten it all up and check everything.
